Roy Willard Blankenship was put to death by injection at the state prison in Jackson after state and federal courts turned down his appeals. The 56-year-old was pronounced dead at 8:37 p.m. He grimaced throughout the procedure. While Dr. Carlo Musso participated in the execution, a complaint against him has been filed for illegally importing sodium thiopental from overseas and for later selling doses to officials in Tennessee and Kentucky.
Lundbeck has now killed as many people as Jeffrey Dahmer did in the USA. The only difference is that the serial killer laboratory did it within a 6-month period while it took Jeffrey Dahmer from 1987 until 1998…
It is now responsible for 17 of the 24 executions carried out so far in the United States in 2011.
One more patient awaiting Lundbeck’s treatment in June:
Richard Bible, Arizona, June 30, 2011
